Work until they stop paying you. Every dollar counts in this economy. Unless severance is higher than your wages that you would have got it makes no sense to quit early.

Wait!!! Especially if classes are virtual in the fall may be able to swing a couple more pay checks until things ramp up.

I was planning to quit right after 4th of July but now will probably go until at least the end of July. Would not mind being laid off at all though...

I think wait

I would wait.

Absolutely wait imo, if you’re checked out use this time to take care of you!

Same boat. I planned to quit early July but now looking at early August

The advice makes sense. Def worried I’ll get a bad rep before I leave for not caring enough for an extended period of time but I guess I’m also not planning on coming back

Lmao me too isn’t it insane how that works??

Already quit :) best decision ever

I’ll drink to that

was going to leave early july but staying until early august

Voluntary layoffs sound 🔥🔥🔥
